Escher String Quartet

No charge for Four Arts members

The Escher String Quartet is at the forefront of American string quartet playing for their mix of profound musical insight and rare tonal beauty. The group’s M.C. Escher-inspired philosophy of balancing individual components with a cohesive whole comes to life in an evening of Classical and 20th Century Quartets. Haydn’s “Lark” soars with appealing melodies and fluttering figures; Janáček’s String Quartet No. 2 conjures the intimate side of string playing; and Ravel’s glorious Quartet in F major traverses the full range of human emotion from introspection to exuberance.
